Reviewed April 10, 2014

No trees make for no character or shelter to the environment. Lovely white sand and beautiful clear pure water makes good swimming.

“A pleasant family day”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

These are three fresh water lakes whose level depends on rain and evaporation only. There is a white beach ,safe bathing, boating, fishing and a campsite. It is also a nature reserve so there are strict rules [like no dogs asit is a Kiwi area]. Three generations of family had a great day.

“Spent 2 days here”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

This is a hidden gem and well worth the visit. Drive past the main entrance and take the second entrance to the campsite. We loved it.

Could not believe the absolute beauty of this place. Some walks available too. Fortunately campsite completely empty so beach was too!

“Kai Iwi Family Swimming”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

We all enjoyed the cool clear water with white sand beach. Safe for small children and deeper waters for older children and adults. No shelter from the sun so bring you own tarp between two cars or gazebo. Tarp between two cars better when windy. Camping area but good day tripping from Dargaville base. 20 minutes by car.
